Art of the Week: “Palette Knife Earth”

Title: “Palette Knife Earth”

Artist: Matthew W.

Over his years at the Arc, Matthew has developed two distinct styles as an artist. With the first style, Matthew uses ink to populate the paper with a field of colorful dots, creating a kind of abstract pointillism. With the second, Matthew uses a palette knife to layer and scrape paint, creating complex and textural swaths of color. “Palette Knife Earth” melds these signature styles, resulting in an unexpectedly perfect marriage.
